This article has become obsolete, as this offer of AnyMeeting Free is nowhere to be found on their site, and instead one has to sign up for the Pro Service and then there is a 14-day free trial. Typical offshore marketing ploys.
Thank you for the update. I will confirm and update the article accordingly.
Google Hangouts is a great meeting/webinar tool it is free and packed with features, streaming, recording, whiteboard, desktop sharing and more. Also you don’t need to have a Google account to join a Google Hangout session.
Hi there, I tried it and I can’t find the whiteboard and collaborating feature, any tips?
Do you know if this supports those who have upgraded to windows 10?
It should as it is browser based… So irrespective of the OS, it should work in your browser.
